Appealing to the citizens to join the campaign, CM Shri Arvind Kejriwal said that Delhi has again defeated dengue this year, the cases were further reduced and not a single death has taken place due to Dengue.
CM Shri Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, “Today is the 9th Sunday of the ongoing campaign against dengue. I changed the water accumulated at my house. The cases of dengue have reduced even more and no dengue-related death has taken place in Delhi this year. Delhi has again defeated dengue. #10Hafte10Baje10Minute Har Ravivaar, Dengue Par Vaar.”
This week Delhi Health Minister Shri Satyendar Jain credited the Arvind Kejriwal government’s anti-dengue campaign for no dengue-related deaths this year. He tweeted, “Delhi people did it! No death due to dengue this year. There is also a sharp fall in the number of cases compared to the figures reported last year. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s campaign ‘10 Hafte 10 Baje 10 Minute’ has been made a success by you all.”
Last week, the anti-dengue campaign got support from celebrities such as Shri Shankar Mahadevan, who encouraged the citizens of Delhi to religiously follow the Dengue prevention guidelines, such as inspecting their residences for signs of stagnant water, draining the accumulated water, or adding a layer of oil/petrol to it to prevent the breeding of mosquitoes.
On every Sunday, under the 10 Hafte 10 Baje 10 Minute campaign
- Change the clean stagnant water collected at home/shops/offices/surroundings.
- A dengue mosquito thrives in clean stagnant water. The water deposited in the pots, coolers, A/C, tires, vases, etc., should be drained and replaced by the citizens every week.
- Add a small layer of oil/petrol to the accumulated water.
- Always cover the water tank with a lid.
- After inspecting their own houses/shops/surrounding areas, people shall promptly call 10 of their friends. With the cooperation of all, dengue can be eliminated from Delhi.
